Egg Substitutes

From childhood itself i wanted to bake a cake myself, but had to skip most of the recipes, as all of them had usage of eggs in it. Me and my family being vegetarians we don't use eggs in our day to day cooking. I was doing lot of Google searching for the egg substitutes..... now have come to conclusion with few of the substitute which we carry normaly in our pantry.... used in a correct ratio will give an end result of the same as eggs in the recipe.

Few Egg Substitutes:
  1. Ener-G Egg Re placer(pls follow the directions in the pkt) available in most of the supermarkets.
  2. 2 Tablespoon Corn Starch = 1 Egg
  3. 2 Tablespoon Arrowroot Flour = 1 Egg
  4. 2 Tablespoon Potato Starch = 1 Egg
  5. 1 heaped Spoon Soy Powder + 2 Tablespoon Water = 1 Egg
  6. 1 Banana = 1 Egg ( for making Cakes,Muffins etc.,)
Hope these substitutes would help you all too...

I feel 'eggzactly' the same way. Loads of recipes with 'high-drool-factor', and all 'ruined' with eggs! One more addition to your list could be colas. My granny shared a egg-less black forest cake recipe, which uses coco-cola instead of egg. The cake comes out really fluffy and soft!
